Brito Bounced From 40 Foley to 500 Pearl in December Now Bailed On VOSR in Mag Court

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 10 -- Francisco Brito was brought in on Violations of Supervised Released on March 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate. But there was a history.

  Back on December 12, 2019 with SDNY Judge Andrew L. Carter's usually courtroom in 40 Foley Square not accessible due to broken elevators, Brito was to appear in 500 Pearl Street. But he was directed back to 40 Foley, then back again. He was an hour late.

  His lawyer Michael Sporn tried to call him, but told Judge Carter "It goes directly go voice mail. He may be down with the marshals now. He has to check his phone there."

  Later in the proceeding Sporn said, "while I was talking to Mr. Brito in the hall outside the courtroom, Jimmy O'Neil walked by, who is Judge McMahon's deputy, and he recognized my client because he confirmed that my client knocked on his door an hour ago on this floor to try to find out the right place to be. So he was here and he was trying."

    Then on March 10 Brito was bailed again, no need for a new co-signer, with a new date before Judge Carter on April 14, though the Assistant US Attorney said she'd like one sooner. The case is US v. Brito, 14-cr-223 (Carter).
